[SciPy-dev] confidence intervals on multi-parameter minimisation

I have been using fmin_l_bfgs_b to perform bounded non-linear multi- 
parameter estimation.

Is there a way to determine the confidence intervals on the resultant  
parameter estimates.

I've seen reference to scipy.odr as a better alternative to  
scipy.optimize and have checked out the latest svn and currently  
trying to build (OS X 10.4.9) which is always fun.

However, I can't find any documentation on what scipy.odr is.

Can someone point me somewhere.

regards,

Graeme
